This Arrow Dynamics looper dates back to 1976 and remains in pretty good condition for its age. Consisting of six cars seating two across in rows of two for a total capacity of 24 riders, the train leaves the loading station, travels through a short tunnel, ascends a 103.7-foot lift hill, veers left and drops 90 feet. It then goes through two consecutive vertical loops before entering a tunnel with special lighting effects. From there it rises, negotiates a left turn and enters a second tunnel, finishing with a double corkscrew before returning to the station.
The ride experience is enjoyable for the first three quarters of the ride. Although some
may disagree with me, I found the double corkscrew brutally rough and consequently had no inclination to re-ride. Demon is OK if you don’t mind getting banged up a bit. 2 ½ out of 5 stars. For more information about rides at Six Flags Great America, visit www.sixflags.com/greatamerica
